Like everyone who knew her, we are devastated by news of Chris’ death. As a Counterpart Peer Support Volunteer since 2018, she helped so many other women affected by breast or a gynaecological cancer. Her kindness, optimism and genuine interest and care will be missed by many.
We were very touched that Chris and Carol named Counterpart as one of the charities they have asked friends and family to donate to in lieu of flowers.

I wish I’d found Counterpart earlier in my cancer experience. I may not have felt so alone. To be able to speak to a volunteer would have brought much comfort and information that would have been invaluable.
I would never say I’ve walked in another’s shoes, but having walked a similar path means I can offer support that others aren’t always able to.
